|NEOREGELIA ‘Morris Henry Hobbs’||Foster, M.||1950|
cv. of fosteriana(?) X spectabilis(?) - (Other cvs. = 'Fosperior' & 'Dexter's Pride') - Foster distributed seed or seedlings from this grex to Dr. Morris Dexter and Morris Henry Hobbs - each selected a cultivar and named it - Hobb's chose the name 'Morris Henry Hobbs' - The large unmarked dark-burgundy rosette is essentially identical to the other two cultivars which are probable selections from an F-1 grex? - Other scenarios exist for the origin of these cultivars but this version seems to predominate.
